BIM follows drinking water conservation guidelines to manage the demand for drinking water during the summer months by asking residents of all water systems to follow at least Stage 1 of the drinking water guidelines below as of May 1 of every year.
However, while BIM continues to work with the community to implement a solution for Eagle Cliff’s recurring seasonal water supply shortage, a solution is not feasible for the summer of 2023. Water supply issues are also anticipated for the upcoming summer months. A more proactive approach to water conservation is required. To help prevent an early drawdown of the Eagle Cliff Reservoir water level, Eagle Cliff went to Water Conservation Stage 2 on May 1, 2023, followed by Stage 3 on July 4, 2023.
As of July 21, 2023, Eagle Cliff is at Stage 4 of the Drinking Water Guidelines.
Stage 4 puts prohibitions on outdoor water usage.
- No lawn watering
- No garden watering (including fruit and vegetables)
- Car and boat washing for safety: windows, mirrors and license plates only
- No power washing
- No filling or topping of pools, hot tubs, fountains or ponds
